Ruth King - Personal Training Systems
Personal training should be just that - one size does not fit all!
I have over fifteen year's experience in the fitness industry having started out working for some of the larger chains. It didn't take me long to realise that these organisations are geared to turnover and making money, and as such the individual became a commodity. This was not how I saw my career developing and so I took the decision to start my own company Personal Training Systems.
Having been a very overweight child, and battling with my weight throughout my teenage years, I eventually lost, and maintain a loss of around four stone. I am all too familiar with the perils of yo-yo dieting and know from first-hand experience there is no magic formula - we have to move more and eat less.
In 1987 I sustained a back injury which resulted in surgery. With regular exercise I have safely manages a 'glass' back without any long-term back pain. This is another area where I feel I have good first-hand knowledge to help others with similar problems.
My degree in Exercise and Health Science, together with a commitment to ongoing professional development, means that all of my advice to you is based on the most up-to-date scientific evidence available, and not what happens to be the current latest celebrity fad.
I believe, that it is important to make each session an 'experience', and in this way good exercise habits are built and maintained.
